46) Paul was given a revelation from God

Ephesians 3:1-3 For this reason I, Paul, a prisoner for Christ Jesus on behalf of you Gentiles— (2) assuming that you have heard of the stewardship of God's grace that was given to me for you, (3) how the mystery was made known to me by revelation, as I have written briefly.

Paul’s primary ministry was to take the gospel to the Gentiles. He was given the mystery of the complete gospel message through direct revelation from God. This mystery was that the promise of redemption was to include people from all ethnic groups and not just Jews. The Abrahamic promise of a great nation was fulfilled in the body of Christ that Paul also calls Abraham’s offspring, heirs according to promise.

Thanks. Yes, I think Paul makes it clear that salvation is in Christ for all through faith and that in the new covenant Jews have no special spiritual status.
